Diabetic foot ulcerations exhibit a wide range of the bacterial spectrum. A long-standing question is whether any particular bacterium or class of bacteria is responsible for the more involved ulcers. A review of such cases at Sheridan Park Hospital reveals that there may be factors other than bacterial type that may account for the virulence of diabetic ulcers. Multifactorial causes host a vital role in this common, but potentially serious, podiatric problem.
